Juventus’ 2-1 Champions League win over Real Madrid has excited defender Stephan Lichtsteiner who feels the Serie A champions’ superb tactical display made the difference in the first leg of the semi-final clash.
Former Real Madrid star, Alvaro Morata gifted Juventus the lead early on before Cristiano Ronaldo equalised in the 27th minute.
However, Carlos Tevez eventually helped Massimiliano Allegri’s men to a vital home win with a second-half penalty strike after he had been brought down in the eighteen yard box by Cavarjal.
Lichtsteiner was overjoyed with his side’s performance and has called for a repeat in the second leg.
“We definitely gave them a tough time. I don’t think they’re used to playing against an organised team like us,” the Switzerland international told reporters.
“We can be happy with the performance and result, we put in a fine display.
“Madrid possess top players who can make the difference if you don’t stay alert. It’s impressive how good they are, but we were excellent.
“It’s important we show more of the same in Madrid.”
The return fixture at the Santiago Bernabeu will take place on May 13.
